Eden Hazard fell awkwardly in his right foot after 28 minutes. Due to concerns about complicated developments, coach Zinedine Zidane had to withdraw “number 7” from the field for the doctor to check.
Initial results showed that Hazard had a problem in his right thigh. Real will conduct a more thorough inspection on November 29 to accurately determine the affected area.
This is the fourth time Hazard has been injured at Real in a year. The first two times involving his right ankle, the injury that caused the Belgian star to be absent for 150 days in total. The third time was a muscle injury at the beginning of the 2020-2021 season, which left him six games off.
The above incidents do not include minor injury at the beginning of the 2019-2020 season, time off due to overweight and quarantine due to Covid-19 infection. Due to frequent physical problems, Hazard only played 28 games in a year and a half for Real.
From great expectations for the $ 110 million star, Real is realizing that Hazard is a real problem. “Number 7” not only deteriorated compared to the time playing for Chelsea, constantly injured, but also became a bad example of the attitude of the game. Many experts believe that, by gaining excess weight, Hazard does not care about dedicating to the new team.
After Hazard left the field in the 28th minute, Real continued to receive bad results. Alaves took a 2-0 lead after 49 minutes, making Casemiro’s equalizer meaningless.
